Namaste by swo8 Blues Jazz from the album Black Taj in iTunes

The Indian tradition of greeting is Namaste. The literal translation of the word “Namaste” breaks down into three sections…Nama means bow; as means I; and, te means you. Thus, I bow to you. The gesture is one of greeting. Most often we hold our hands together in the prayer position at our heart chakra. 2:48 min.

  1. Quite an economy of elemental sounds in ‘namaste’, a complete sentence there. I quite enjoyed the photographs that accompany the music, where each pair of hands points so intricately. Curious timing as well: just this morning I learned that the eye-teeth are so named because they line up perfectly with each eye; in fact, I still had the tab open to that link on this very computer screen:

    Adding to the serendipity, I had also read that the tension created when you face the palms together to express ‘namaste’, simultaneously points to the third eye as well as the heart chakra. 🙂 🙂
